Pregnancy & Postpartum
There has been little in life more magical than the chapters where my body was shared with those of my children. I know very well on a personal level what it feels like to want to make the very best choices beyond my own self and ensure the uncompromising care of my babies.
This important period begins in the months leading up to conception and carries through the duration of pregnancy, breastfeeding, and postpartum. Your skin lives in a state of constant fluctuation in these years, riding the tumultuous waves of hormones and heightened stress levels.
You might have been expecting the infamous “pregnancy glow”, but it is very normal for skin to instead go total haywire - everything from hormonal breakouts to melasma, dermatitis, and eczema (not to mention stretchmarks and sore nipples!). Breathe deep, and try to find patience and loving kindness for yourself as the magnificent vessel of life you are.
